The fact is that at this point, it's a concept. All that is publicly known of the concept is what Trump and other administration spokespersons have said. Mostly they have said it will be wonderful and will keep us much safer.

Concepts, of course, are very plastic things. If there ever is a corresponding reality, in the future, perhaps we will get to see what it really is.

Good summary of the public positions here: http://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-t...-mixed-reviews

Well the meeting was not about orphan adoptions but Hillary.

It is unclear whether the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, actually produced the promised compromising information about Mrs. Clinton. But the people interviewed by The Times about the meeting said the expectation was that she would do so.
Trump & Co are being peeled like rotted onions; Manafort, Flynn, Kushner and Trump's sons.

Hey, let's form a collaboration with North Korea on nuclear weapons! We share secrets, you know, so they will stop threatening to blow us up! Heck, maybe they'll even pay for the wall!

Trump is not my 'Dear Leader'. However he is the only one shouting out that we have over reached, that we cannot carry everyone on our shoulders since our shoulders are not that broad as it once was and that those in the world who have done well economically should help themselves and others around them.

It's been pointed out in numerous articles that this is a simplistic worldview, discredited by just about anyone with serious credentials in world affairs. He's being led astray by Bannon, and he's too simpleminded to know any better. But Trump supporters don't read, so they go right along with whatever Trump and his mouthpieces like Limbaugh say.

'Peeled like rotted onions', I like that.

And here it is, a direct admission by Trump Jr. that he agreed to meet the Russian attorney since she promised to hand over damaging information on Hillary.
Quote:
“After pleasantries were exchanged,” he said, “the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”
Quote:
“It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting,” Mr. Trump said.
Read that last part again: “the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting.”

Trump Jr. confirmed that he went into the meeting expecting to receive information from the Russian lawyer that could hurt Clinton. That is a breathtaking admission.

That's all we need, lock him up.
